Hey everyone I am trying my best to post regularly, but per usual, I forget to document blog-worthy events/outfits/etc! Maybe one day I will be a consistent blogger… Anyway, I got home from CycleBar today and was eating dinner and thought, it would be a fun idea to do a tiny room tour post on my blog!
I am not sure if I have even talked about this on my blog yet, so I should give a little back story. Forth of July weekend, I moved from my apartment in Downtown Denver about three miles away to the Highlands neighborhood. I really did not want to move because I liked my set up, my roomie, and the fact that Paul was next door, but when I took my new job three and a half months ago, the commute grew and driving home to downtown Denver added an extra 20 minutes just to drive through town. When looking for a new place, my previous roomie and I had different neighborhoods we were targeting so we decided it would be best to find our own places. I was sad because she was an AWESOME roomie, but we are still great friends. I hopped on Craigslist as I did previously, and found the place I am in now and my roommates. The two girls I live with already had picked out the house and just needed a third person to complete the lease. The area was super ideal and even though it is only 3 miles from my previous apartment, I save 20 minutes on the commute home! Although, I do go to Paul’s twice a week straight from work so on those days it is literally the same commute as before.
When I signed the lease the other girls had already picked out their rooms so unfortunately, I was stuck with the tiniest room. My furniture kinda fits and when I say it kinda fits, I mean barely. My dresser is about a foot from the end of my bed so some of the drawers don’t open all the way and I have to shimmy by to get to my laundry basket and two plastic drawers filled with socks, leggings, and swimsuits I have by the window (I did not include a picture of those because you would probably get claustrophobic just looking at it). But anyways, enough rambling, below are some pictures of my tiny room.
My Tiny Room Tour:
My bed literally takes up a huge portion of my room and it is only full size. The bed as well as the side table is from Ikea. I had to get really creative with storage because my closet is also tiny. Under my bed I have two clothing organizer bins, one with all my jeans and work pants and the other with winter clothes and sweatshirts.
My desk is from Ikea and I love it! I am just missing a chair… so I can’t sit at it. At my previous place my roomie had an extra chair that was part of a dining set she left back at her old place. When I moved, obviously I gave it back. Paul does have an extra computer chair I can have, but I have just been too lazy to bring it over.
Thank god I have two windows in my room or it would seriously feel like I am in a shoebox. The house doesn’t have A/C so the hot Denver summer has been a little rough, but the black out shades work miracles.
This is my closet door. I plan on doing a separate small closet organization post, but just to give you a sneak peek, I have a back of the door shoe rack, a shoe rack on the ground and then all of my dresses and nice clothes hung up. The back of the door shoe rack is seriously a life savior!
Last but not least, my dresser from Ikea. As you can tell it is right up against my bed and then to the right of the picture is my laundry basket and two organizers that are so difficult to get to.
Tips for Storage in a Small Room:
- Under bed clothing organizers! These are amazing and so helpful. I recommend these HERE
- Under bed plastic organizers for medicine, tolietrees, etc. I have a wide plastic organizer that I have had since freshman year of college under my bed. I share a bathroom at my house and there is barely any storage area so my tub comes in handy. It has everything from extra face wash, shampoo, tampons, medicine. You name it, it is probably in my tub. I recommend this one HERE
- Get a back of the door shoe rack! Mine saves so much room. I recommend this one HERE
